Shikhar Dhawan-led India have arrived in Trinidad for the three-match ODI series against West Indies, which begins on July 22.
The Men in Blue are coming on the back of an ODI series win in England. The team, however, will not feature the likes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah, who are all rested for the ODI series against West Indies.

The team features Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer. Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan have both been named in the side.
